[D7840ZBI], Letter from James Adams to Charles Batchelor, August 11th, 1878

Editor's Notes

Grave an exhibition of telephone to financial men Thursday and to press on Friday -- experiments were most successful -- Bailey pushing Puskas hard to accept 50,000 francs cash and so much stock of company he is afraid that Puskas will back out -- Puskas also has an offer of 100,000 francs for France and Russia and Adams thinks he can do better -- Bailey can't do anything with Gray or Phelps -- magneto phones useless to try and show whwn there are 50 or 60 Frenchmen and everyone talking at once -- some of the newspapers say Gray telephone shown but it wasn't Bailey paid for that to show what kind of fellow Bailey is -- describes what happened at exhibition and how Herz said Edison telephone best before audience and was now sorry he let it slip through his fingers
